So... ColorFabb is releasing another exotic filament... brassFILL

https://www.3dhubs.com/talk/thread/brassfill-new-filament-colorfabb?utm_source=customerio&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=customerio&user=26273&otl-token=B7Do2g2-dodn3kMkpguBK9dbORA6q0nJGRgf9ExeUHM×tamp=1418397121

I think it looks pretty sweet, Im more impressed than with the copper and bronzeFILL prints Ive seen... What do you guys think?

    Is the reported issues of the bronzefill, copperfill filaments wearing and enlarging the nozzle true? Is it worth staying away from for that reason? Just curious what to expect from those who have used it.

    Qmaker, I have printed quite a bit using bronzefill and there is no noticable damage so far. It seems unlikely that the material will damage the nozzle... ok maybe after thousands of hours... but certainly no reason to stay away from these materials. Give bronzefilll a try i`m sure youll love it.

    I have printed a lot with bronze- and copper fill.. (btw, in my subjective opinion bronze is

    easier to print!)..

    I use it for prototyping a new guitar pedal enclosure, and the knobs also..fantastic material,

    investors dont even think it isn't real bronze!

    The material does not enlarge the hole noticeably, but it rubs its nose and "flattens" the nozzle, giving

    it wider shoulders and eventually increased plate-distance (frequently a good thing if you can make

    the material stick.. it all "evens" out after a couple of layers.. I use quite high plate temp initially

    in the hope it sticks better (60-ish), then quickly lower to 50--).

    My reco is a 0.2 Z-hop, to help a bit, but it still rubs..

    I am eagerly awaiting the Brass material!

    Hey swordriff, do you have photos of the bronze fill and copperfill prints you have made? I would love to see them.

    Also, with the new colorFabb XT-CF20 Carbon Fiber filament, they recommend the following:

    CARBON FIBER IS ABRASIVE:

    A special point of attention is the abrasive nature of the carbon fibers. In general these fibers will accelerate the nozzle-wear of brass nozzles, much faster than unfilled filaments. Therefore we recommend to use nozzle’s from Stainless steel or hardened copper alloys.

    Any suggestion on where to get a quality Stainless Steel or Hardened Copper Alloy Nozzle for an UMO?

    Thanks :)

    -Jerry

    Jerry!

    If you mount a stainless steel Nozzle, it will upset the heat transfer, stainless steel is a much poorer

    conductor of low frequency electromagnetic radiation ( = heat) than brass, which composes

    mostle of copper.

    Chromium plated brass is worth investigating,. and I am looking into it as we speak!

    Since you have an UMO, you can easily change the nozzle... hehe...

    I was wondering that actually about stainless steel - good point! Let me know if you find a Chromium Plated Brass or Hardened Copper Alloy Nozzle!

    FYI: I contacted Colorfabb a few days ago and they said brassfill's availability is delayed until the end of February.
